Ohio funding will help connect those recovering from substance use disorders to jobs

By Kendall Crawford

People recovering from substance use disorders can struggle to find work. Several programs across Ohio aim to help and will get a boost from federal funding.

The Appalachian Regional Commission distributed $2 million to create employment programs in six locations across the state. The funds will help Meigs County in southeastern Ohio build its very first Recovery Community Organization, a group that will provide outreach to people with substance use disorders from people with lived experience.
